The men’s soccer tournament at the Tokyo Olympics does not feature the United States, but still has some exciting talent from the world’s top countries in the sport. Brazil and Spain headline the competition, but Mexico, France and Germany should challenge for the top spot on the podium. Here’s how the opening day of the men’s soccer tournament at the Olympics shapes up.

Best Bet: Brazil over 1.5 goals (+110)

This team doesn’t feature household names like Neymar and Roberto Firmino, but has plenty of attacking talent with Gabriel Martinelli and Richarlison. Germany has a good unit but Brazil is one of the favorites to win for a reason. Expect some goals in this one.
